What Bert Has To Say About Shreveport-Bossier City Metro Area


Shreveport is a commercial and cultural center for northwest Louisiana, northeast Texas, and southern Arkansas. In the early 20th century, the area experienced a major oil boom which then declined through the century. Recently a new riverfront entertainment district with nightlife and casinos and a new convention center have revitalized downtown Shreveport.
